    Hi,
    Just bought a FR-V and the car battery was totally dead. Now the key remote doesn't work and there's a red flashing light on the dash whilst driving.
    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks
    Anthony

    Hello and welcome to Honda Karma.
    If it's what I'm thinking, it's the anti theft system. But it shouldn't blink when driving, unless the alarm is not disarmed. With my FR-V, if i unlock the car with the key the alarm goes off, I can drive but the alarm won't stop. Can you maybe upload a video of the blinking light so we are on the same page? Also have you tried to change the battery on your keyfob?

    Do share pictures if your new car with us. Add it to the club garage.

    I've had a read and I think my alarm might of been disabled, seeing as there are a lot of problems with them.
    This wouldn't stop my remote locking from work though, would it?

    Normally the Fob doesn't stop working if the FR-V battery is changed. I Changed the battery on my FR-V 2 years ago and it was just like plug and play, nothing had to be reprogrammed. Just thinking if your Fob is faulty or if the anit theft system not allowing you to program the key. Have you tried with a second/spare key?

    Only have one key at the moment and the car battery was dead for weeks.
    Will be taking it back to where I bought it.

    Car is still at garage as it had a whining noise which has turned out to be power steering pump. I did go down on Thursday hoping it would of been done, at which point they said that they were resetting the alarm?? They mentioned something to do with the alarm losing communication with the car or something like that.
    Will know more when I pick it up.

    Got car back, they've done a couple of jobs on it but haven't fixed the remote locking. They said they don't know what's wrong:brickwall:
    I've got a locksmith coming next week to do a spare key, hopefully he can sort it. if not will be going back to garage again:Blink:

    Hopefully it will be sorted soon. One at a time is the best way.

    Been trying to research this a bit more and think it can only be either a faulty remote or faulty keyless entry module. suppose only time will tell.

    Hopefully it's the key. Will be cheaper than the module

    Locksmith came today, couldn't sort the remote locking!
    Does anyone know where the keyless entry module is located?

    Never really got to the bottom of this, garage just ended up putting an aftermarket central locking kit on.
    So got remote locking, just not with key.
